Criminal Minds Season 16 coming to Paramount+ very soon! Although, Criminal Minds Season 15 has just premiered but fans are still expecting a renewal. The fandom is quite lucky because Paramount+ has revealed interesting news regarding the 16th season of Criminal Minds or perhaps a mini series. We have add a lot more news with latest update about season 16!
Release Date: Criminal Minds Season 16
The 15th and the final season of Criminal Minds went on air recently in 2020. It was announced by the creators that the show won’t return for any more seasons. So, here is our clear-cut answer that Criminal Minds Season 16 was never announced officially! So, naturally there is no release date for it either. Moreover, don’t expect one either because it is not likely for the show to get renewed.
But yes there can be a reunion sort of special episode which can be made for the fans. The decision lies in the hands of Paramount+, CBS Studios, and ABC Signature. It is up to them if they are planning on making a reunion special sort of spinoff series. It is too early for this sort of content.
The cast was released from their contract following the 15th season’s premiere so it will be difficult to get them back together given their busy filming schedules. According to some reports, Paramount+ is actively working on the pitch for a ‘16th season’. And some actors don’t really seem to be impressed by it. So, it will be a tough one for the creators to recruit the main characters back into the show.
Despite all these odds, the President of Paramount+ himself announced on Twitter that the project is well and alive! And the rumors about it getting canceled are baseless.
Criminal Minds Season 16 Cast:
Criminal Minds Season 16 is not confirmed to return. The decision is still yet to be made. Despite this a total of 6 cast members have agreed to return to the show! Before we begin to tell you about these details, let it be known that these are speculations from official sources. So, it is not guaranteed if the following news is fully true or not.
For now these actors are on board with the idea of a reunion sort of season; Mantegna, Vangsness, Rodriguez, Cook, Tyler, and Brewster. Some might not return because they have decided to move on from these characters. The 16th season of Criminal Minds might also have new characters along with the older ones. We are yet to receive information on the latest additions to the cast.
Shemar Moore wasn’t there in the final scenes of the 15th season either. So, we can’t be sure about his involvement in the 16th season. It solely depends on Paramount+ whoever they want to include in the 16th season of Criminal Minds. The storyline will also get affected by which characters get finalized. Hopefully we’ll get to know about these details once the 16t installment becomes official.
Criminal Minds Season 16 Plot:
The original plot of the show revolved around a bunch of FBI officers who work on criminal cases. The leaders of this specific unit make the main characters of the show and the entire 15 seasons revolve around them. The cast will come back together to work on a single case in the 10 episodes long 16th season.
The 15th season did not sit right with the fandom. The story seemed to be rushed and Messer himself revealed in an interview that the writers were trying to opt for a different writing style but due to the limited number of episodes the new style just did not work out. So, expect the 16th season to be better in terms of writing and production. Because now that the crew has experimented they know better.
Trailer: Criminal Minds Season 16
There is no official trailer for the 16th season of Criminal Minds Season 16. We don’t have any sort of footage from the upcoming season yet. Expect the teasers to release 3 to 4 months before the official premiere. The filming for the 16th season hasn’t even begun yet which means that we’ll have to wait for a very long time for the trailer. But hopefully, this wait will be worth it.
Criminal Minds is truly a masterpiece from Paramount+. And if you’re into this kind of genre then you should definitely give it a watch. The first 12 seasons are available for streaming on Netflix. And the entire batch of 15 seasons is available on Paramount+. For more updates stay tuned!
